have the ability to spot stories of real criminality and import, like the crimes of, let's say, npr. >> the national public radio executive caught on tape in a bigoted hate-filled rant. >> juan williams fired by npr for saying he gets nervous when flying with muslims. >> the upheaval at npr reached its zenith today. >> president obama still supports giving npr your tax dollar money. >> on the npr scandal, is the left wing media playing that down? >> liberals are intolerant. >> we've linked npr to soros, we know what they're doing over there. >> the corruption is so widespread it's succeeded in permeating every area of the mainstream media. >> these crackpots at npr. >> the totalitarian tactics of the left. >> is npr an agent somehow of a jihadist inquisition. (laughter and applause) >> jon: is npr an agent somehow of a jihadist inquisition? i'm going say yes because why else would you bring it up? (laughter) see, that is a reasonably proportioned response. this is overreaction to the murdoch case which what is at most an epic bribery and influence peddling scandal consuming britain'

concerned with early reports. then i heard the president say this. let me play for you what he said on npr himself today. >> we have to make tough decisions on things like defense spending el arizona well as domestic spending but we also have to have more revenues. with that acknowledgement that we need a balanced approach, that republican leaders on capitol hill are going to be willing to engage in the kind of compromise that can resolve this problem. >> mr. steele, a balanced approach, we've got to have some revenues. republicans have got to be willing to compromise. >> yeah. >> i mean, can your party get it together and understand that they cannot put it all on grandma's back? >> well, yes and they're not. and i think to dana's point, the interesting thing about what the clip you just played of the president, is that he wasn't necessarily talking about right now. remember, there is now washington has come to the conclusion that this is going to be a two-step process. the first is to get something done by august 2nd and the second piece will get into the real deep substance of what the l

expensive for people to afford. >> brown: julie r.o.v.er in of npr, thanks so much. >> you're welcome. >> ifill: now to the third in our series of reports from indonesia, where developing a male contraceptive is the new face of family planning. ray suarez reports. >> reporter: it doesn't look like much: six-feet tall, a leafy shrub growing amid the lush foliage of an indonesian forest. but a chemical locked in these leaves could become a useful tool for limiting population growth here in indonesia and potentially around the globe. to get to the plants, it's a one-hour hike or a white- knuckled motorcycle ride up a steep mountain path across two rickety wooden bridges. the plant is called gandarusa and its medicinal qualities have been known to people here for centuries. traditionally, it has been brewed into an herbal remedy for stress to calm the nerves. but for a long time, there had been talk of an unexpected side effect: reduced fertility. now researchers in surabaya, on the eastern edge of the island of java, are drying the leaves, chopping them up, extracting the active chemical

, give me a break, it's legal now. the npr reporter explained that the teacher now discusses gay sex with students tore rowly and explicitly with a chart in the 8th grade. i feel like i'm representing parents who have not been invited to speak who have a seriously held religious view that marriage is between one man and woman and they want to protect their young children against other views. robin in 2006 had their 7-year-old son joey come home to tell about a book the teacher read to the 1st grade class on same-sex relationships. they thought he was mistaken at first. the request the school inform them about such presentations, and they were turned down. another couple, david and tonya parker had a worse result when questioning the teaching of the same-sex issues to their young son. mr. parker found himself in jail. i'm trying to be a good dad parker said after the arrangement. they were christians attempting to follow their faith. we're not intoller rapt said his wife. we love all people. that's part of our faith, but see the judge ruled in that case, the case of the parkers and th
